ColourQ #182



This weeks color combination at ColourQ is so beautiful and reminds of me of summer for some reason, so warm and fresh. Each one of the colors is so soft and sweet and go so well together. I needed to make a bunch of thank you cards for all of the school parents and volunteers who helped out at our annual auction and wanted something that I could make several of that would be quick and easy to make but still look nice. I don't think it will take too much time to make a dozen of them and maybe I will change up the color combination or keep it simple and have them all the same.  Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card....have a wonderful day!

  1. This is so pretty--what a great card for that color scheme. I think you should make all of them exactly like this. I love your little button trio at the bottom, too.

  5. Put the hammer away because you just nailed this challenge! The image is flawlessly stamped (not an easy task with such a large stamp!) with such a nice deep tone! The ribbon and the three buttons perfectly balance your card.

    The auction volunteers are going to be thrilled when they get this lovely message of gratitude!

  15. Love you card. So cute. And thanks for all the nice comments on my blog. I have been busy taking care of grandchildren and my 92 year old dad the past couple of weeks so have not been able to get on and make comments or make cards. I hope things will get better this week.
